Some of you have already seen my post on facebook, but for those who have not...... over 4 years ago, I bought Mabel to eventually breed to the frozen I had on then 10 year old Harvard. It's a lovely pedigree mix. She finished her championship in December of 2019, and I thought Ok, finish her Grand, get all her health testing done, and breed her later in 2020. HAHAHAHAHA!! Well Covid happened and then a big move happened, she finished her Grand Championship in June of 2022. Harvard died at age 14 in March of 2022. Mabel is now 4 1/2, and I had to ship Harvard's semen from PA to Florida where we now live. Long story short, Mabel was confirmed in whelp by ultrasound last Friday. I am so excited to be able to have a litter from Mabel sired by my heart dog, Harvard.

FYI - Not looking to sell puppies, I have a waiting list & I'm keeping a male, Mabel's breeder is taking pick girl.

YAY!!!! Now how excited are you? When is she due? Reds and blacks and either clear or carrier puppies--that worked out well. Yeah--I had to go and poke around in the puppy pedigree (thanks for putting that up)--I can look at them individually but it's always nice to see it all together.

Boy it was a long wait for you--I've got my fingers crossed for a stunning male to take his place in your life and heart.

Big Congratulations...

So I’m just curious as to how many puppies she will produce from, is it frozen semen? I’ve known cases in the past so I’m just here to learn?
Yes, this is a frozen semen breeding. The sire died at age 14 this past March. I neutered him when he was 7. A lot of the time, frozen breedings produce a small litter. It is always a risky, and getting the timing just right is key. I did a ton of progesterone tests - LOL! What is seen in an ultrasound is never written in stone, so I'd rather not say how many the vet saw - but it was more than I expected or hoped for. Here is hoping that none get reabsorbed.

I am beyond excited, but also nervous because I know how much work it is and I'm just hoping that I'm up for the challenge. I was a decade younger the last time! Her due date is around October 19th. My house in Pennsylvania was really set up for puppies, and this house really is not. I will manage, but it will probably drive my husband right up a wall to have them in his office - LOL!

Congratulations!!! What an exciting litter. I always loved Harvard and I'm so happy he's being used again. He has so much good to contribute to the breed.

I hope you'll keep the forum updated about this litter!
